    I'm not sure how to better say what I'm trying to, but I'm not saying she needed to not attack the program, but there is attacking and then letting the energy get away from you, which is what the program looked like to me. Yes she's been off the ice with injury, so that factors in, and I like the comment about "jitters"... I think that's closer to what I was getting at. I'm not saying take it slow, but don't go bull in the china shop either. Once she finds the balance she'll be amazing. The program has potential.

    She is lucky compared to Oda at his last Worlds with that freak fall too soon after the 2A. Not only was it counted against the jump but it serious hindered the footwork sequence that followed.

    She was frenetic, is the word I think you're going for.
